English term or phrase: ghost
Scary Stuff
Hi, I feel a little strange doing this...but...I guess I\'m not the only
one. I know for a fact that it isn\'t just places that are haunted,
sometimes it\'s people too. I\'m 21 and I\'ve had so many experiences in
my life that it would literally take several hours to tell all of my
My scariest experience was a haunting that lasted just under a year. I
was followed constantly by at least two spirits. They were very
powerful and very frightening. I don\'t like to talk about this
experience because I am afraid that it will give them power to come
back, but I will tell you of three things that happened during this
The first thing that they liked to do was turn my tv set on and off and
change the channel and raise and lower thevolume. Many people saw this
happen and we tried to find some sort ofconnection. I think that it is
possible that the strange happenings had something to do with a penny
jar we kept because every time we took the
pennies out to count them,
the tv would act up, but I don\'t have the scientific knowledge to say if
that\'s possible.
These spirits seemed to be especially drawn to me whenever my boyfriend
was around. We both experienced things separately, but together it was
an almost constant feeling that we were not alone. After we broke up,
the hauntings stopped and when I ran into him 6 months later we talked
about the absence of \"our ghosts\" over coffee and the coffee cup slid
across the table.
The other two experiences I want to tell you about happened with Ross.
One night we were in bed and the lights turned on. We got up, checked
the door to see if it was locked, walked around the house to see if any
other lights were on (which they weren\'t) and finally went back to the
bedroom and had a smoke. After about 15 minutes the lights turned back
off. I said thankyou and they promptly turned back on, then off again.
The other experience that was interesting occurred one night when Ross
was at his parent\'s house about 40 minutes away. I awoke at 4am to find
my bed was levitating. As I opened my eyes, the bed fell to the ground
gently. I couldn\'t go back to sleep so I wandered around the house
wishing Ross was there with me. At 6am he called me (this guy NEVER
awoke before noon) to tell me that he had walked and hitchhiked most of
the way, but he needed me to pick him up for the final few kilometres.
There were many other things that happened during this time and yet for
a while I tried to convince myself that it wasn\'t true. I even wrote an
English exam one year that focused on not believing in spirits. --the
exam went missing!
